European Mission Preparation Course

During the period of November 14th through 18th, 2023, the CCOE hosted the first European Mission Preparation Course for US Civil Affairs forces at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Center in Homewood, Illinois, United States of America.

Together with the 308th Civil Affairs Brigade, a total of 31 soldiers from 5 different units were trained and prepared for their upcoming deployment in Europe.

At the end of the course, CCOE instructors Capt. Degener and Capt. Dyka were awarded for their commitment to excellence, professionalism and hard work by the 308th CA Brigade's Chief of Operations, LTC James R. Coughlin.

The successful implementation is a further step in the cooperation of the CCOE and United States of America Civil Affairs forces.
